How did all of you guys get buff for your gas course? There is no way that I can lift a 50kg boiler, I need a good diet and training plan to get buff so that I am able to lift heavy gas boilers.

Apart from the baxi duo tec I don't think many wall hung boilers are that heavy now.

How many buff plumbers do you actually see walking around anyway? Most of the ones I see are the exact opposite, unless I walk past a mirror :D

There’s ways round everything. Used to work with a guy who fashioned a boiler lifter out of a car jack and some steel plates. It was very similar to a genie for lifting heavy steels into place. He tweaked it for long rads too. Very clever. Planning is a massive thing too clear surfaces etc before you begin your final lift

How much will the lifter weigh though?

What is the average daily diet and workout routine for a plumber? What do you have for lunch and how many times do you eat a day? Does anyone on here workout at the gym and what does your workout consist of?

Fecking soft sh!te gas boilers. Get your balls round an oil combi at 170kg.

Who needs the gym!

I am a regular at the gym , (not at the minute though) as regards actual workout and eating plans etc , well everyone is different, can I ask what you weigh , roughly.

I eat 2 or 3 times a day, mostly miss breakfast. For lunch I have whatever I fancy from the nearest shop, chippy or bakers. I used to go the gym until my vasectomy put me out of action for 3 months, never went back after that :(.
If you want to go to the gym then focus on core workouts. Ask the trainer for a plan to help build your core up which will focus around deadlifts, squats and bench press.
